Now, when I say, ‘to continue to send innocents into the incinerator is irresponsible,’ I don’t mean don’t send.
Here’s one failed missionary who has not given up.
I’ve done my fair share of quitting.

Bottoming out on God just doesn’t work.
When I talk about the incinerator, I’m talking about the mess we’ve made of missions.
I’m talking about the professionalization of missions.
I’m talking about the psychologization of missions.
I’m talking about giving missionaries crutches that fail on the field.
